Pierre internal medical physician Robert Allison, MD, FACP, is the recipient of the 2017 Laureate Award from the South Dakota Chapter of the American College of Physicians .

The honor recognizes fellows or masters of the ACP who demonstrate by example and conduct an abiding commitment to excellence in medical care, education, research, or in service to their community, their chapter, or the ACP.

Dr. Allison has worked at Avera St. Mary’s Hospital and Avera Medical Group Pierre for more than two decades, serving as chair of the South Dakota ACP’s committee focused on health and public policy from 2003-2011, and again from 2014 to the present.

He received the 2015 Neubauer Advocate for Internal Medicine Award, a national ACP honor given to a member who demonstrates excellence in state and national advocacy. He earned his ACP fellowship in 2002.

“The ACP has been important to me and a part of my professional life since medical school,” says Allison.
